INAP Operation - ApplyCharging

The ApplyCharging operation represents the receipt of an INAP ApplyCharging. The test instance will abort if any other inbound message is received.

This message is received by the IN Tester when it is simulating the role of a Service Switching Platform (SSP).

Attributes

The operation attributes are as follows.

Attribute Type Description
type String inap.ssp_from_scp.ApplyCharging
label String An optional label for this node if it is to be the target of a branch operation.
variant String camel, genband (or unspecified for generic default).
arguments Object [Required] The structure of the INAP ApplyChargingArg we expect to receive.
Expressions may be supplied within this structure.

Example

This is an example genband variant entry within the operations array:

{
    "type": "inap.ssp_from_scp.ApplyCharging",
    "variant": "genband",
    "arguments" : {
        "aChBillingChargingCharacteristics": {
            "AChBillingChargingCharacteristics1": {
                "maxConversationTime": 40,
                "treatmentForFirstWarning": {
                    "warningTimeBeforeExpiry": 30,
                    "informationToSend": {
                        "inbandInfo": {
                            "messageID": {
                                "elementaryMessageID": 500
                            },
                            "numberOfRepetitions": 1,
                            "duration": 0,
                            "interval": 0
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

This is an example camel variant entry within the operations array:

{
  "type": "inap.scp_to_ssp.ApplyCharging",
  "variant": "camel",
  "arguments": {
    "aChBillingChargingCharacteristics": {
      "timeDurationCharging": {
        "releaseIfdurationExceeded": "1",
        "maxCallPeriodDuration": "600"
      }
    }
  }
},

This is an example generic entry (no variant specified) within the operations array:

{
    "type": "inap.scp_to_ssp.ApplyCharging",
    "arguments" : {
        "partyToCharge": {
            sendingSideID_hex: "02"
        },
        "achBillingChargingCharacteristics_hex": "00421A0099"
    }
}

Arguments (All Variants)

The following inbound arguments are supported for all variants. Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the actual received inbound arguments will be checked for each supplied "expected" value, and Pass/Fail entries will be generated in the test instance check_log.

To check that an inbound value is NOT present, specify the argument as null.

Argument Type Notes
sendCalculationToSCPIndication Integer Specify the expected integer value.
partyToCharge Object May contain sendingSideID and/or receivingSideID as appropriate.
.sendingSideID Binary String Specify this parameter as a single byte binary value.
.sendingSideID_hex Hex String Alternatively specify a two-character hex encoding.
(Ignored if sendingSideID is defined).
.receivingSideID Binary String Specify this parameter as a single byte binary value.
.receivingSideID_hex Hex String Alternatively specify a two-character hex encoding.
(Ignored if receivingSideID is defined).

Arguments (CAMEL)

The following additional inbound arguments are supported. Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the actual received inbound arguments will be checked for each supplied "expected" value, and Pass/Fail entries will be generated in the test instance check_log.

To check that an inbound value is NOT present, specify the argument as null.

Argument Type Notes
achBillingChargingCharacteristics Object Container for inner values.
.timeDurationCharging Object Container for inner values.
.maxCallPeriodDuration Integer Specify the expected integer content.
.releaseIfdurationExceeded Boolean Specify "1" if the value is expected to be present.
.tariffSwitchInterval Integer Specify the expected integer content.
.tone Binary String Expected Binary Data for tone identifier.
.tone_hex Hex String Alternatively specify the expected value in hex.

Arguments (Genband)

The following additional inbound arguments are supported. Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the actual received inbound arguments will be checked for each supplied "expected" value, and Pass/Fail entries will be generated in the test instance check_log.

To check that an inbound value is NOT present, specify the argument as null.

Argument Type Notes
achBillingChargingCharacteristics Object Container for inner parameters.
.AChBillingChargingCharacteristics1 Object Container for Genband R1.
.maxConversationTime Integer Expected numeric value.
.treatmentForFirstWarning Object Container for first warning treatment.
.warningTimeBeforeExpiry Integer Expected numeric value.
.informationToSend Object Container for audio parameters.

.treatmentForFinalWarning Object Container for first warning treatment.
Structure is identical to treatmentForFirstWarning.

Arguments (Generic)

The following additional inbound arguments are supported. Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the actual received inbound arguments will be checked for each supplied "expected" value, and Pass/Fail entries will be generated in the test instance check_log.

To check that an inbound value is NOT present, specify the argument as null.
